Retirement is an exciting time, but it can also be a challenge. The last thing you want to worry about is health care. Kaiser Permanente WA offers coverage for both Medicare-eligible retirees as well as those retiring before they are Medicare-eligible.
If you are eligible for Medicare and have enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B, you can enroll in our Kaiser Permanente PEBB retiree Medicare Advantage (HMO) health plan. For those who are not yet Medicare eligible, you can remain on a Kaiser Permanente WA Consumer-Directed Health Plan (CDHP), Classic, SoundChoice, or Value plan as a retiree.
If you have questions about eligibility and enrollment, go to the PEBB Program Retirees page.
